    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    I've been playing Dirt Rally with the wrong default steering linearity settings of 0 for the past two years!!! I use a G25. Today I was experimenting and thought I'd try setting steering linearity to -10.  I had to then increase the sensitivity by reducing steering saturation as the steering range had  then became too large but once that was done the game has suddenly come alive!  Codies seem to have made a mistake in the steering linearity section by setting default as 0 and most people will naturally assume that -10 is non linear yet (in my case at least) it is now perfectly linear. I now have far, far better precision, steering resolution, better FFB and the cars now handle exactly as they should. It feels almost like a real rally sim now and the 205 T16 has gone from being a total animal that was very difficult to drive to being the best car in the game. Cant believe it!

    So... I've been playing Dirt Rally with the wrong default steering linearity settings of 0 for the past two years!!! Today I was experimenting and thought I'd try setting steering linearity to -10.  I had to then increase the sensitivity by reducing steering saturation a bit as the steering range had  then became too large but once that was done the game has suddenly come alive!  I now have far, far better precision, steering resolution, better FFB and the cars now handle exactly as they should.

So.... if you arent running on -10 for steering linearity you owe it to yourself to try it. You will thank me later.. Its a totally new game!!!

    That's called realism ;) Meh, I've been in a real rally car and it isnt even close. Might be my computer sound then. I hear him fine. In a real rally car your intercom allows you to hear him and you can turn that mic up or down as you like. If the intercom wasn't working you'd definately have a hard time hearing your codriver through your helmet over the engine, transmission whine and stones rattling the underneeth of the car on gravel, he'd really have to shout... but hey this is just a game. If it was a proper, true sim, we;d have a seperate audio line out for the codriver that we could listen to through our headphones while blasted by the other ingame sounds from speakers, :D
